BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Florida Atlantic University trustees have unanimously approved a six-year contract extension for President Frank Brogan.
The extension approved Tuesday includes a base annual salary of
$357,000, a 10 percent increase from his current pay. Brogan's
benefits, which includes supplemental compensation paid into a life
insurance policy, brings his total package to almost $400,000.
Brogan was hired in 2003 to lead FAU after leaving his job as
the state's lieutenant governor.
He is credited for negotiating a deal to bring The Scripps Research Institute to FAU's Jupiter campus. Under his tenure, he also brought a four-year medical program to the Boca Raton campus. And most recently, FAU leased the school's unused broadband spectrum to a private company for $173 million over 30 years.
